Owned by Active InvestSince 2004 the company is owned by the long-term investor Active Invest Sweden AB. Active Invest AB is an active owner company. The company's business concept is to invest in well-managed companies with great development potential where they believe they can add clear value.
Active Invest prioritises longevity and sustainability and strives to build businesses that can show good profitability in both booms and busts. The total turnover for the company's holdings has increased by 550% since the start in 2004 and amounted to approximately SEK 1.4 billion in 2018.
Over the years, Active Invest has established a good knowledge of the Swedish wood industry through various companies in the wood industries it owns. To clarify the structure within the Active Group, the subgroup Surwood Industries has been formed, where the companies engaged in industrial wood processing of various kinds have been brought together.
The vision is to acquire more companies in wood processing that can complement the existing companies and create synergies that enable a stable, learning and sustainable environment for the companies and their employees to develop within.
